  • Beschreibung


    Please bear in mind before writing to us that we:
    Are now only hosting yoga and yoga related instructors for the months of Jan. and mid feb.
    Only host vaccinated volunteers.
    Don’t accept cigarette smokers, including vapes or electric.
    We don’t take couples or pairs.
    Prefer volunteers to stay for a minimum of 1 to 2 months.

    We are a couple fulfilling our life long dream, and we have just finished the first stage of our forward thinking jungle retreat and bird sanctuary in a bountiful spot along a crystal clear river near Minca, a magical place up in the mountains not far from Santa Marta and the amazing Tayrona park.
    Michelle is a yoga teacher (currently away from the property) I am a designer that lives locally and spends a lot of time on the property. With your help and our wonderful local staff we deliver a jungle immersion experience to the guests in this tropical sanctuary like no other!

    We have used only bamboo (Guadua) and natural wood implemented by a combination of ancestral building methods with state of the art vanguard design, respecting nature as our number one priority.

    We deliver a cutting edge new concept of low impact high quality travel, where we allow in a small group of hand picked like minded guests per month and offer them an unusual immersion experience in the jungle, pamper them with a very dedicated knowledgeable staff, top notch vegetarian food and jaw dropping accommodations.

    All the money collected from guests goes back into future features that enhance the jungle experience such as a canopy walk. It also goes into maintaining all bamboo/wood structures and build new ones, pays for staff and funds all experimental pro/nature local projects including participating actively in efforts that better the lives of underprivileged Minca residents.

    You will be staying at the newly built staff headquarters with clean bathroom, electricity, internet (at the main house for now) a private kitchen and amazing views.
    The river is just steps away and will lull you to sleep at night, and you’ll wake up to bird songs and an ocasional howler monkey call!
    The town of Minca is only a 15 minute walk and has great weather all year round. (It rains a lot in the rainy season but temperature does not change)

    We will share with you our experiences with permaculture and sustainability including the building process of the bamboo nests, the planting and conservation of all the landscape which you can then learn and share thoughts with our guests. You will also learn about local plants and herbs, through planting and caring for the nursery.

    You will be sharing an amazing experience in a wonderful friendly forest with a lovely crew of fun hard working locals and other Wokawayers like you!
